The Association of International Boudoir Photographers (AIBP) seeks to unite professional boudoir photographers globally, to share in common interests from the beauty, art, technique and business aspects of the industry. We hope to create depth and breadth, in a worldwide community of boudoir photographers through increased opportunities for meaningful engagement in order to increase industry awareness, pride, participation, volunteer involvement, and competitive edge with the support of their peers. AIBP offers tangible, digital, cash prizes and an opportunity to be published internationally by encouraging positive competition, and highlighting the achievements of those who perform with excellence. Below are three awards we give close to the New Year, to reflect on the prior 12 months of AIBP member participants. The three biggest awards a member can receive are: “AIBP Photographer to Watch,” “AIBP Photographer of the Year,” and highest award for AIBP recipients to strive for is the “AIBP Ambassador of Excellence.” It IS possible, that one person could win both Photographer of the Year and Ambassador of Excellence, should they be phenomenal in many ways. Below are the top three awards and their description, and below those, are additional seals that photographers can earn through AIBP when certain accomplishments are achieved.
